My bearded dragon got a hold of a fake fishing lure and ate a piece of it. The piece wasn’t very big but i’m worried it’ll hurt him. Any suggestions on what to do?

Take him to the vet. If he is a baby take him in double time. Impaction is no joke,take it seriously. Better safe than sorry

He’s isn’t a baby he’s a little over a year old. There isn’t any exotic vets open near me tomorrow just hoping he passes it.

Hello,

Since it is a very small piece, it "should" pass through. This is assuming that there wasn't
any sharp edges?
You can help things along with giving some canned pumpkin, & some unsweetened apple
sauce mixed with a drop or two of coconut or olive oil daily to see if that helps out.
Is h e doing ok so far?

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
